Retired school teachers from Tampa, FL, Diane Rodriguez, 73, and Mimi Pike, 67, during a Father’s Day march at the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Florida on Sunday, June 16, 2019. ";

David Nurenberg spent his Father’s Day roughly 1,500 miles away from 8-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son, with children who aren’t his own.

The 42-year-old traveled from Boston, Massachusetts, to Homestead on his own dime Friday night to attend a protest outside the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in southwest Miami-Dade County.

“We’re privileged because we can be together as a family,” he said. “I decided I wanted to use that privilege to get together on Monday for Father’s Day and instead spend some time Sunday in support of kids who aren’t as privileged.”
